• Why Dark Matter is Bullshit
    175 replies, posted
Dark matter is the stuff that is used to explain why, according to our math, there is more matter than is observable. It can only be "seen" by its gravitational effect on nearby mass. It was "discovered" by Swiss scientist Fritz Zwicky. He was studying a galaxy cluster and noticed that he could not see nearly enough matter to explain all of the fast orbits and such. Thus, he assumed there must be some sort of totally undetectable matter that was about 400 times the mass he could see. This is all fine and dandy, except... 1) We know almost nothing about gravity. 2) Our math is imperfect, especially at extremes such as galaxies, stars, and atoms. So, dark matter is the thing used to explain the effect of an extreme of something we don't understand that is detectable only via imperfect math that is especially imperfect at that extreme. Everything else about dark matter is just elaboration on bullshit. This includes its composition, how it "causes" gravitational lensing. All of this stuff that dark matter supposedly does is probably just properties of gravity (and possibly other forces) that we don't know yet. Before you go dissing me, just remember that not too long ago the moon had seas on it, the Earth was the center of the universe, and tapeworms were good for you. Pictures, because I know someone will appreciate them: Gravitational Lensing [img]http://www.windows.ucar.edu/the_universe/images/ab2218_sm.jpg[/img] Supposed Dark Energy/Dark Matter to Normal Matter Graph.

using this argument, you can also say "why science is bullshit"
hahahaha
It's actually Nibbler-shit if you want to get technical. Also, science is almost never right, probably never will be. We just have to make assumptions based on what we can sense.
Damn there go my Illuminati conspiracy theories.
I think you need to do some more research.
Oh Facepunch, you and lamebrained bathroom theories.
Dark energy flows though ur veins
Fucking hell, why the fuck do people here seem to think they know fucking everything about science over people who have have phds in it!
*sigh* at least your avatar is good advice.

Dark Matter is not false, I've seen it, see, proofs: [img]http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/half-life/en/images/thumb/8/83/Dark_Fusion_Reactor_1.jpg/200px-Dark_Fusion_Reactor_1.jpg[/img] Anyways, what danharibo said would be accurate, your argument is not valid at all. Good bye.
Hey guys I can't see what makes up most of me so it must be EVIL GLUONS.:hydrogen:

OP most likely thinks the universe was created 6,000 years ago.
Here's a little summary of the OP for you "I'm a dumb kid that just proved that years of highly funded research is most likely just a bunch of idiots making up bullshit entirely [b]without[/b] the use of external sources or scientific facts in my argument!!" you're an idiot
[QUOTE=STREWTH_99;15583561]OP most likely thinks the universe was created 6,000 years ago.[/QUOTE] The bible says it so it's true. This post is a joke for all the idiots who disagree.

that's what i'm here for

Clearly OP did little research before posting.
[QUOTE=PieHard92;15583699]Clearly OP did little research before posting.[/QUOTE] I'm fairly certain that he did [b]no[/b] research before posting, actually.
He has those nice charts. Obviously he used google for something.
[QUOTE=fragmaplas;15583735]I'm fairly certain that he did [b]no[/b] research before posting, actually.[/QUOTE] [b]HEY[/b] He google searched for images, that's research. He's a credible scientist!
[QUOTE=PieHard92;15583759][b]HEY[/b] He google searched for images, that's research. He's a credible scientist![/QUOTE] That is a fair point, I take back my previous statement.
Last I checked Gravity is substantially weaker than all the other forces in the Universe( Magnetism, Nuclear forces(or whatever that shit holding atoms together is) are all much much stronger)
Hahahahahahaha
Personally, I think matter in general is nothing but bullshit made up by scientists - just like global warming.
